i've been running a stable oc since i built this computer on stock voltage at 4.2 by simply upping the multiplier with absolutely no problems. after running it like that for months i looked into upping that a little bit more and i'm wondering if someone could give me advice if this is good or not.

i tried upping it to 4.4 without upping the voltage which didn't work so after looking around a little bit and getting an idea of what kind of voltage that would require i set my voltage to 1.175 and then the mult to 4.4. this seems to be working ok, but i wanted to see if a few things are normal for something like this.

first thing is temps obviously. this is kinda strange for me because using occt shows my core temps and click bios (program that comes with my MB to alter bios in windows) shows cpu temp but usually my cpu temp rises a few degrees above my highest core temp by about 3 or 4 degrees. so im wondering if thats normal. core temps range from 32-38 idle and 58-64 full load. on the bios program its showing about 32-34 idle and 58-68 full load generally stays around 64. another strange thing though is before i changed the voltage and went to 4.4 my idle temps were around 38 and now they've dropped....

the only other thing that was kind of confusing was i set my voltage to 1.175 but its fluctuating between 1.5 and 1.6 and never actually goes all the way to 1.175. i read that if i changed it that it would stay at that voltage and not fluctuate at all and even though its working i was just curious if that was also normal.

I found similar with my 3570k, o/c stock to 4.2, but needed a little more for 4.4G, 1.14v in my case. My temps are around 60-62C.

If you adjust your offset in bios, the voltage will still fluctuate, if you set it as fixed, it will be fixed.

On my Asrock board, I set the Turbo to the minimum possible, which is 0.004v and then the offset which is -0.01v. This gives me about 1.14v on max load.

It never reaches 1.175 because of Vdroop. If you want it to go up there you need to change your LLC (Load line calibration.)
